healthy enough to play, but he says he just wanted to make the most of this opportunity. >> i told coach shanahan on the sidelines near the end of the game, i said this experience today was invaluable, much like the reps i got in practice this week, much like training camp reps, preseason games. any time i can get a chance to go out and learn from mistakes, learn from success, i become a better quarterback and today was no different. >> the redskins are now 8-6 on the season. they take on the eagles next sunday in philadelphia. the skins' regular season finale against the cowboys could decide who wins the nfc east. both teams, as well as the giants, have the same record, 8-6. however the burgundy and gold are technically in first place because they have a better record within the division than the giants and they beat the cowboys in their one meeting this year. if the redskins and cowboys both win next week, their game december 30th at fedex field could be for a division title. >> you know what? i wouldn't play rg3 next week either. the eagles are a bad team.
